Eintracht Frankfurt News and Form

This always looked as if it was going to be a good tie. After a 2-2 draw in the first leg, it’s up for grabs still. Frankfurt of course now have home soil advantage to back up their away goals. This is only going to be the fourth match between the two sides, with things even at one win each and a draw from the previous three. Frankfurt have drawn their last five games in all competitions, including the draw in the first leg of this tie.

In their last six at home in all competitions, the German side are W2 D2 L2. They have failed to pick up a clean sheet in any of those, so there could be a small window of opportunity for the visitors. But it is well worth noting that Frankfurt have won six of their seven games this season (D1) in the Europa League. That’s the kind of form that you can’t really ignore. In their three European home games this season they have scored a total of eight goals.

Shakhtar Donetsk News and Form

You always got the feeling that Shakhtar were going to be a handful on home soil. Their best chance of staying in this time was from a positive home result. The 2-2 isn’t bad really as that gives them something to aim at. That first leg is their only game played since early December last year. The Ukrainian league does not restart until March.

So that does put them at a bit of a disadvantage. Shakhtar are on a three-match winning streak on the road in all competitions. One of those was a 3-2 victory at Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the group stage of the Champions League. That was their only win of their six group stage matches (D3 L2). Meaning that they have won just one of seven European fixtures played this season home and away.
